I go away for a few hours, to the doctor and lunch, and the political "shit hits the fan."
John McCain tries another gimmick--postponing campaigning and the first debate, like the Palin VP nomination gimmick. You tell me which candidate has been steady at the helm this past 10 days and which one has been reacting like a rank amateur. I guess if you were McCain you would look for any port in the storm.
Jonathan Chait has this to say:
Coming on the heels of George Will's devastating assessment of McCain's temperament, I wonder if an impression is hardening that McCain is too much of a risk-taker to be trusted as president. McCain's romaticism and flair for the dramatic is fun and thrilling, but kind of scary.
